O, let us exalt our dear Lord and proclaim,
In songs of true gratitude, praise to His name!
As songs of the angels in sweetest accord,
Our thanks and our praises shall rise to the Lord.

Lyrics
Jesus, come, O come to me,
Lord, I pray, abide with me.
Come, Thou art my soul's delight,
And with me do Thou abide.

Thousand times I long for Thee;
Nothing else can comfort me;
Thousand times I cry to Thee;
Jesus, Jesus, come to me.

Pleasures on this earth abound,
Yet my heart no joy has found.
But Thy presence, Lord, to me
Shall my joy forever be.

To no other be it told
That I would my heart unfold;
Only Thou may enter in,
Only Thou may reign within.

Only Thou, O Son of God,
Will I call my crown, my lot;
Thou O Lamb, didst die for me;
Thou my bridegroom e'er shalt be.
